Memory is one of the most important mental abilities any animal has, humans included. Without the capacity to remember and recall things, we would never be able to learn new skills or facts. Social life would crumble, as it depends on being able to remember and recognise people as distinct individuals with whom we have different relationships. Our memories are also central to our sense of self: they make our lives feel like a continuous and coherent story with us at the centre. This handbook will explore the fascinating world of memory, showing how it is both incredibly robust and also worryingly fragile.
